I have been recently been spending more time trying to improve my street photography. Check out my previous video on a couple of books that have helped me a lot . That video was partly shot in the book store below.
Here are some examples of recent attempts at the craft of Street Photography starting with my favourites and descending to the ones that couldn’t quite make it (gallery two). I included lots of images for Holiday viewing knowing you are getting bored with the summaries of what happened in 2023 or whats going to happen in 2024.
Hong Kong Food
Hong Kong has such a variety of food and one block in Mongkok can exhibit many iterations of past, present and future?
The picture above looks like a coffee place but it is selling tea of many different brews and varieties. I’m not knowledgeable enough to appreciate it, but the locals love it.
The picture below deserves explanation. If a picture needs explanation then it has already failed from a street photography point of view. But I took this picture for fun as the building houses food or animals representing different species. We all know McDonalds, there’s fish, goose, beetle and unbeknownst to me, until translated by my wife, are a whole variety of different cats written in different coloured neon (the top left). This is a pet shop not a restaurant. Couldn’t see any reptiles though…..Maybe next year there might be a restaurant serving snake.
